Rushmore is a 1999 soundtrack to the Wes Anderson film of the same name.
In the album's liner notes, it is explained that director Wes Anderson originally intended for the Rushmore soundtrack to be almost entirely comprised of songs by The Kinks. This concept changed, however, during filming, until only one Kinks song remained on the album.
The songs "Jersey Thursday" by Donovan and "I Am Waiting" by The Rolling Stones appear in the film, but were ommitted from the soundtrack release.
From All Music Guide:
The likable and jovial soundtrack to the American cult film, Rushmore, zeroes in on swingin' London, in particular, the mod scene of the mid-/late '60s. Thankfully, all the heavies are included: Creation, the Kinks, the Who, the Faces. More thankfully, however, are the atypical song choices: the Kinks' "Nothing in This World Can Stop Me Worrin' Bout That Girl," the Who's zesty mini-opera, "A Quick One While He's Away," the Faces' reflective "Ooh La La." Cat Stevens, John Lennon and Chad & Jeremy -- who check in with the album's only hit single, "A Summer Song" -- also are included (as are some original, but dull, orchestral pieces by Devo member Mark Mothersbaugh). A rare soundtrack that works, formatting its individual and well-chosen tracks in service to the album's sum.
